REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- A newly published report from Dell'Oro Group, the trusted source for market information about the networking and telecommunications industries, reveals that wireless LAN (WLAN) equipment revenues are poised to grow 13 percent in 2005 to $2.6 billion, and that the market will continue to grow through 2009 to $4.3 billion, a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13 percent.

"The architecture of Enterprise WLAN networks is changing to facilitate larger installations and to alleviate IT managers' security and management concerns," commented Greg Collins, Senior Director of Wireless LAN Research at Dell'Oro Group. "The centralized deployment and management solution offered by Dependent Access Points and Switch/Appliance architecture will continue to become an increasingly popular method for enabling centralized management and security functions within corporate WLAN networks," he said.

According to the Dell'Oro Group report, the SOHO market for standalone WLAN equipment will decline; however, this decline will be more than compensated for by sales of WLAN embedded in broadband Customer Premises Equipment. Over time, the overall growth of the SOHO WLAN market will shift to another class of products.
